Out of jail and back in the GOP

After serving seven months in prison on conspiracy charges, Charles McGee is "back at his old job with a Republican political marketing firm, Spectrum Monthly & Printing Inc., and will be helping out at the firm's 'GOP campaign school' for candidates."

You're kidding me.

I mean, that'd be like having a failed businessman as the president. It'd be like crafting an energy policy based on the energy industry's wish list. Like...

McGee paid telemarketers to tie up Democratic and Union phones in New Hampshire. To sort of, you know, hinder the single most important civic gesture in America.

And now he's teaching a clinic in how to be a Republican. But don't worry, the president of the firm that hired McGee assures us that "He's certainly not going to be standing there and advocating breaking the law..." Phew.

Ironically, this episode of forgiveness for crimes admitted to and repented for is one of the few Christian gestures the present-day Republican party has actually made.

Wonder if it's because it's because it's a "white"-collar crime and because maybe he, umm, swallowed some other info he may have had on higher-ups? Nah.
